According to online statistic wizards Statistic Brain, the majority of people with hair loss are so concerned about their condition that they would rather have more hair than money or friends. The statistics go some way to highlighting the serious psychological effects that hair loss can have: depression, anxiety and a drop in self esteem are just some of the things those with hair loss may have to deal with.
Taking Hair Loss Seriously
Many doctors are only just beginning to acknowledge the serious effect that male pattern hair loss can have on those experiencing it, especially when the man in question is in his teens or twenties (we see many patients in this age group, despite many assuming that they are too young to be experiencing the onset of genetic hair loss).
Thankfully, the NHS has officially recognised that men may need support by way of counselling or therapy, and their website states that: “Your GP can refer you…to a psychologist to help with the trauma of hair loss.”
Support, 7 Days A Week
At Belgravia, a crucial part of our treatment plans is ensuring that our patients are well informed about every aspect of their individual programme. We also make ourselves available seven days a week including several evenings in order to provide support, guidance and to answer any questions in person and over the phone or by email.
We carefully track the treatment’s progress using photos, and can easily tailor your programme if higher strength treatments are required.
A Truly Personal Approach
Our bespoke treatment programmes are built around the only two clinically proven medications for hair loss that have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA. The first of these, Propecia, is a daily oral tablet, taken to block the affect of DHT, the androgen that causes scalp hair follicles to shrink and produce weaker hair before eventually ceasing to function.
The second medication, minoxidil, can be altered in strength and combined with other useful ingredients to suit the individual up to our high strength minoxidil 12.5% cream for stubborn patches of loss. Particularly effective when used together, these medications combine with several treatment boosters and clinical treatments to create a truly individual approach.
So, if addressed in a timely fashion, there’s no need for hair regrowth to be a mere dream. By treating hair medically and eliminating the need for a costly hair transplant procedure, you really can prevent baldness whilst keeping your friends and your bank balance.
